When I was hospitalized with a minor stroke ( I say minor because I was admitted quickly in a window of time that minimized the damage, which I am eternally grateful for) I searched for the best healing verses with the most inspirational background music I could find. Here is the video version of what I thought was the best followed by the verses I typed out for your edification and comfort. It’s in the NIV, which is not one of my favorite versions, so for those who feel the same, I’ve added the New King James verses in bold print below each NIV verse. These verses will build your faith for healing and divine health and soundness and starve your doubts to death if you’ll listen to them and meditate on them and confess them. Some of them are repeated twice for emphasis by the creators of the video. I hope they are a blessing to you. Feel free to print them out and pass them on. You don’t need all 50 to get healed. All you need is one that is alive in you to be healed, but they will all help you familiarize yourself with the many healing verses in the Bible and build a solid faith life.
AMAZING TESTIMONY OF KENNETH E. HAGIN’S DILIGENCE IN THE WORD
My spiritual father in the faith, Kenneth E. Hagin, once faced a health crisis with his little daughter Pat. She had a growth in one of her eyes. He had scriptures on healing marked out in his Bible and spent time meditating on them during the nighttime where he would sleep an hour and then stay up for an hour meditating on the scriptures pertaining to her daughter’s healing. He did that all night, one hour sleeping, and the next hour awake, and meditating on the scriptures. He did that for two nights in the midst of conducting some meetings himself. This really impressed upon me the importance of being diligent to put the word of God in your heart. After filling his heart with faith by meditating on the healing scriptures, he called home and told Pat that she was healed. That day the growth she had on her eye disappeared. Glory to God! The Word works, but you have to work the Word.
The reason many are weak in faith today is because they don’t feed their faith this way with the same diligence and attentiveness. If it worked for Bro. Hagin it can work for anybody. We just need to apply the Word with the same diligence he did. I know the following scriptures are many, but you don’t have to use all of them. Listen to the video and see which ones the Holy Spirit quickens to you. That is what I did while I was in the hospital for 16 days, and it is what sustained me and gave me hope. When I had the stroke I was disappointed and tempted to be sorrowful and depressed, but listening to the scriptures via video each day and night got me through that difficult time. It put hope and then faith in me. You can do the same. I put this lengthy blog together because I want to help the sick and diseased to get healed. I want to give you hope and faith is the substance of things hoped for (Heb. 11:1).
You might say, well,” I’m not sick”, but if you’ll wait until the day when sickness and disease attacks your body, you’ll be on the defensive, but if you’ll continually fill your heart with healing and health scriptures now, you’ll have reserves to call on when the evil day comes. Or you’ll just walk in divine health where you won’t ever have sickness and disease. I hope you”ll do the latter and build your faith constantly throughout your life because sickness and disease is one of the main areas where Satan will attack people, and Christians are not exempt.
